Big Cheese & the Jive Rats SwingDoors at 7:30 pm Lesson at 8:00 pm Show at 9:00 pm $15 Big Cheese & the Jive Rats bring musical mayhem to the second annual "Swing in the Fall," Ashkenaz's two-month series of swing dances taking place every Thursday in October and November. "Swing in the Fall" covers the gamut from classic big band sounds to jump blues, gypsy jazz, and New Orleans R&B. Each night begins at 8 pm with a choice of a beginning/intermediate dance lesson with Karen & Michael or a more advanced lesson with rotating guest teachers (included in the ticket price), followed by the evening's live band at 9 pm. Tonight's special lesson is Balboa with Burnie Gipson (the first in a two-week series), taking place in the Back Studio. Until Mood Swing Orchestra signs off on April 30, the joint will be jumpin' and swingin'. Not since the late Frankie Maximum band put a big twist on country and Western swing has there been a Bay Area swing band that demands that its players and everyone on the dance floor have so much fun! Big Cheese & the Jive Rats pick the best and the most novel of jump swing novelty songs by everyone from Spike Jones to Slim Gaillard, and then swing 'em even harder and funnier. Watch out for a few rowdy originals tossed into the mix. Big Cheese & the Jive Rats are keeping alive the jump swing tradition of Slim Gaillard, Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, and the vout-o-rooney generation. This high-energy, frenetic, and comedic novelty bebop show has band and audience alike clucking like chickens, barking like dogs, eating potato chips out of the Big Cheese's hand, and laughing in rhythm. This combination of talent and savoir-faire is rarely found in one performer, yet the Big Cheese has cleverly stumbled upon the magic recipe. His outfits are in a clash by themselves, and his show guarantees memories to last a lunchtime. And where else can you dance to such favorites from the previous century as "Atomic Cocktail" and "Serenade to a Poodle"?

“YMCMB better watch out because our boy Big Cheese is about to take the rap world by storm. Talking about alligator seats with the head in the inside is good and all but that’s just not hot enough. That’s where Big Cheese picks up the slack and makes it sizzle with “Gimme Dat Bacon”.”
